DMN/UT-T Poll: A slim majority of Texans approve the way Gov. Greg Abbott (R) is handling his job, and fewer than a third of Texans disapprove, according to the latest Dallas Morning News/UT-Tyler poll (PDF). His overall job approval rating is 52/31. He received the approval of a third of Democrats and nearly three quarters of Republicans.

President Biden’s job approval rating is 47/40 overall. Only 14% of Republicans approve of Biden’s job performance. Independents’ approval of Biden (42/35) was very close to their approval of Abbott (44/34).

Overall, respondents had net-positive views of the job performances of Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (38/27) and Atty. Gen. Ken Paxton (36/29). Respondents favored U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (40/26) more than U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (42/45). Respondents’ “impression” of former President Trump was, as it often has been, almost evenly divided (43/47).

Asked about the five (at the time) emergency items identified by Abbott, a plurality of respondents identified “election integrity” as the “highest priority for the state.”
